Let's Talk Film: The Hunting Ground

Let's Talk Film: The Hunting Ground
Description:

The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. Hunting Ground is a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate. The film follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families.

The Let’s Talk Film Series is a monthly documentary series focusing on socially relevant themes ranging from food systems and mental health to domestic violence and drone warfare. Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film community conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action. Films are shown in partnership with Vermont PBS at a variety of venues throughout the Northeast Kingdom. This series is supported in part by the New England Grassroots Environment Fund.
